Game Notes

Game Summary

The B.C. Lions did not know what to expect as they traveled to Ottawa’s Frank Clair Stadium to face the Riders. Since their first meeting this season, which B.C. won 48 to 11, Ottawa has brought in former Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware and outstanding guard Mike Schad as well as making many other line up changes. The Lions effectively adjusted their game and beat the Riders 43 to 24. The CFL’s leading touchdown scorer opened the scoring for the game. Cory Philpot broke a running play for 62 yards and the TD on B.C.’s second play from scrimmage. Lui Passaglia kicked the convert. B.C.’s Sean Millington also scored a rushing touchdown in the quarter. He took the ball in from the 3-yard line for the major. Passaglia kicked the convert. A field goal from 24 yards out by Passaglia rounded out the scoring for the first quarter. Ottawa got on the score sheet in the second quarter with three field goals. Kicker Wayne Lammle’s attempts were from 27, 16, and 45 yards respectively. Passaglia also booted a field goal during the quarter from 41 yards out for B.C. The Lions dominated the third quarter not allowing Ottawa to mount any kind of comeback. Passaglia opened the second half scoring booting two field goals. One from 46 yards, the other from 32 yards out. B.C.’s offence continued to move the ball well as quarterback Danny McManus capped a drive with a 4 yard TD pass to Paul Blackwood. Again, Passaglia kicked the convert. Following an interception by Lion DB Tom Europe, McManus threw another TD pass, this time to RB Sean Millington over 39 yards. Passaglia’s convert rounded out scoring for the quarter. Half way through the fourth quarter, Passaglia completed B.C.’s scoring for the game with a 35 yard field goal making their final tally 43. Ottawa tried to comeback but were down too far and started too late to have any effect. CB Mark Ricks returned a punt 83 yards for the Rough Riders’ first touchdown of the game. Lammle kicked the convert. Their offence finally put a TD on the board late in the quarter as newly acquired QB Andre Ware threw a 22 yard pass to Nigel Williams. Ottawa converted the TD with two points from a Gerry Collins rush to make the final score 43 to 24.
